Winemaking Notes – In 2012, we partnered with Quintessence Vineyards to plant a 13.6-acre block on the south slope of Red Mountain. No expense was spared in the design and development of the site. We worked hand-in-hand with the Quintessence Vineyard team to transform the 13.6-acre site into a world-class vineyard through meticulous site selection, variety and clone selection, and vine density and orientation. This team effort culminated in the reincarnation of one of the original wines in the Mark Ryan lineup: Water Witch. After carefully selecting the top performing blocks in the 13.6-acre vineyard, we are very excited with the results. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is lightly pressed to barrel.

Tasting Notes
The 2019 Water Witch opens with tobacco, dusty plum, and dark bing cherry aromatics, transitioning to brighter cherry and blackberry flavors on the palate. The savory backdrop presents as lightly herbal and is reminiscent of chamomile with white pepper and baking spices coming forward mid-palate carrying into an earthy forest floor finish.
